Dubois crushes Snijders, Joyce on tap?

Unbeaten WBO #3, WBC #7 heavyweight Daniel Dubois (15-0, 14 KOs) destroyed late sub Ricardo Snijders (18-2, 8 KOs) in less than two rounds on Saturday night at BT Sport Studios in London. Dubois overpowered Snijders and battered him to the canvas three times in round one. After another knockdown in round two the fight was waved off. Time was :20.

With the win, Dubois retained his WBO international belt and set up a likely October showdown with unbeaten countryman Joe Joyce.

Unbeaten IBF #6, WBC #15 super flyweight Sunny Edwards (15-0, 4 KOs) outboxed Thomas Essomba (10-6, 4 KOs) over twelve mostly uneventful rounds. Scores were 115-112, 117-112, 117-111 as Edwards successfully defended his IBF International strap.

WBO European junior welterweight beltholder Sam Maxwell (14-0, 11 KOs) outpointed former European champ Joe Hughes (17-6-1, 7 KOs) over ten rounds by scores of 98-92, 97-94, 97-94.

  • What a waste of a day. I’m going to be late to my buddies wife’s birthday party because I sat through these garbage fights. That Sunny Edwards came into the ring with pig tails and he looks like an inbred, he’s got some good skills but man what a tool!!!

    • Who’s Sunny Edwards? Sounds like Diamante/Diamond whose hair-do gives me the heeby jeebies.

  • That was too easy but it was somewhat of a warm up t keep him focused for his fight against Joyce in the fall. I tell you what tho, If Dubois hit me with one of those body shots, I’d probably be in a coma. Brutal body shots no matter what.

  • Not sure what all the hype is about this guy. Yes he can crack but just about all heavyweights have a ko punch and his power doesn’t seem all that much in the way everyone talks about it. He is slow and telegraphs his punches and his footwork isn’t anything special either. Maybe I am used to the heavyweights of the 90s but Joyce is slower than a turtle with a crutch so that fight is pointless also. I don’t mean to be disrespectful against him or Joyce but I just don’t see elite quality in either. He reminds me of better version of Clifford Etienne. I am not so sure his power will stand out once he steps up in competition.

    • Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Jack Johnson, Ali, George Foreman & 1985-1990 Mike Tyson demolishes every one of this crop of HWs People have become of the mindset that a BIG (6’6” & taller) is a better HW. WRONG! The bigger they are the harder they fall!

  • Dubois is so relaxed and soft spoken. Dubois smashes C level fighters. Great bodyshots. Dubois was in against an undersized punching bag but he finished the job. Joe Joyce will need at least some defense and head movement to compete with Dubois. I would like do see Dillian Whyte against Dubois.

  • This fight was nothing more than a comparison to WD-40 spray. Breakin’ the rust loose!

  • I didn’t watch it – but I’m guessing by the reviews the whole show was a farce. Some days I wonder why the sport allows such events. I go back to a time when Royce Gracie won the UFC and got $50k
